CCM Tacks 4052 Ice Hockey Skates Sr
Comments: Post-break in review..... I had to exchange these for an 8.5 size. Unfortunately my foot is a E width, but these skates are only offered in D and EE. Punching them out and more heat molding did nothing for the foot cramping.
Comments: Big fan of CCM, even with my RBZs when I saw these were back I picked them up. I immediately noticed a difference in the turn radius, light weight and response. The forward-profile is great in addition to the Attack Frame.I didn't experience any pinching. There was some discomfort because I took these out of the box into a game situation (with only 1 bake session), so don't tamper with your laces. Wear them as you'll play in them.I recommend 1-2 baking sessions to get the custom fit right as well as a hard practice session to get them fitted well.
Pros: - Lightweight and durable - Great blade design and turning radius - Noticeable response in forward/offence
Cons: - Needs time to get through the initial 'stretch' - Not as responsive when skating backwards (but still good)

Comments: Currently running RBZ skates. I did my first skate today at my local rink. First impression are the following: heel lock keep feet locked in place but I had to loosen my skates to eliminate pinch. Feel very light and more explosive from stand still compared to my RBZ. Backwards skating was mire responsive and fast. It feels like I've gained an extra step. Also, fairly comfortable. Happy so far on first skate. Should get better after break in.
